"Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it." ~ George Orwell
The fashion. The music. The selfies. The texting and tweeting.
If you're a middle-aged baby boomer, you've probably found yourself shaking your head on more than one occasion when trying to understand millenials. The glaring differences between the generations are often hard to ignore. Sometimes this fuels misunderstandings and misjudgments that tend to create a culture of cynism and distrust. But once you get past the differences, you'll find that there is plenty that each generation can learn from the other.
If you have a millenial in your life that you struggle to understand and relate to, you'll want to tune in today. We're chatting with Christin Taylor, a professor who has worked with millenials for 10 years, and author of the new book, Crew: Finding Community When Your Dreams Crash. Tune in as she teaches you what it takes to bridge the generational gap and reach out to the young adults in your life.

Millennials are looking for meaning, purpose, and connection in their work and are willing to take risks to have it. How do successful, progress-oriented organizations take advantage of the connection between Millenials and the previous generation? How do we create environments to bring them together? In this program we will discover ways leaders can create conditions for success. We'll learn some techniques to maintain the attention and dedication necessary for rapid prototyping and game-changing delivery. And, we'll talk bout how to keep the ball moving forward, while supporting each other to achieve new levels of growth, learning and performance.
This week we'll be interviewing Angela Thurston, one of the brightest young millienial stars we know. Angie Thurston is at Harvard Divinity School to deepen spiritual community among millennials amidst increasing religious disaffiliation. A graduate of Brown University, Angie spent six years as a playwright and arts administrator in New York City. She now applies her creative energy to collaborations centered on fostering spiritual growth.
America is changing: Millennials are less religiously affiliated than ever before. Churches are just one of many institutional casualties of the internet age in which young people are both more globally connected and more locally isolated than ever before.
Against this bleak backdrop, a hopeful landscape is emerging. Millennials are flocking to a host of new organizations that deepen community in ways that are powerful, surprising, and perhaps even religious. After two years of noticing this happen, Angela has coauthored this report with Casper ter Kuile. The two are sharing their findings in order to start a conversation. They speak to three groups of people: Organizational leaders, organizational supporters and those interested in America’s changing religious landscape.
They highlight ten organizations that illustrate what is happening. These organizations have a shared ethos. They map out their ancestry, sibling projects, and cousins in corporate America. They close the report with a few considerations for the organizations and others invested in their success, asking: Who are we serving? How are we leading? What about God?
Hopefully these organizations will begin to see themselves as part of a broader cultural shift toward deeper community. By consciously coming together, they could form the DNA of a fruitful movement for personal spiritual growth and social transformation. We invite you to join us in considering how millennials are changing the way we gather.
This weekend I participated in Dylan Fest Duluth which has been going on about 20 years. I live in Duluth now where he was born. A few events which used to take place at Zimmy's in Hibbing; have been transferred to Duluth because Zimmys the restaurant which was named after him is now closed. I sang in a Bob Dylan songwriter competition on Friday night. The talent is incredible and people came from all over. After about 25 minutes of discussing Bob Dylan, we redirect the conversation to the last 15 years in American history with the advent of the Oprah Show, the new style of music, music managers in the industry including Britney Spear's career including her journey in and out of drugs. Bob Dylan said this when he responded to multiple fans saying he was a prophet. paraphrased "People kept telling me that I am a prophet." then he goes on to say when he brought the message of Jesus to his fans, they rejected him. I can tell you from a Christian point of view, he found the truth of God after fame. He was not tricked into it. He found it on his own. He his a natural son of Abraham coming from the Jewish faith. So don't reject his messages of his Christian era. It won't affect him if you don't. It will affect your own vision. We continue the discussion of how L.A. changed after the Aids crisis and more. Listen to this cultural masterpiece known as Poltical Gravity.
Every year, millions of working Americans spend part of the month of November selecting their employee benefits. It's a confusing experience for most of us. How do you choose what's right for you?
This show will focus on helping Millenial workers sift through their employee benefits options and put together a plan that makes sense for them.
Carol Harnett, president of the Council for Disability Awareness, and Jennifer Fitzgerald, co-founder and CEO of PolicyGenius, will talk through how Gen Y employees can make the most of their employee benefits choices -- in 15 minutes or less.
This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we continue our conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century.
It seems every religious group has its fundamentalists. So, are religious people particularly prone to fundamentalism? Or, is it just part of some people’s personality? And how about religion and politics? Is there a line between faith and political involvement? Can we honor both our religious values and our responsibilities as a member of a diverse nation, at the same time?
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. We’ll get into these difficult issues of fundamentalism and religion and politics from a faith perspective with the students. Their questions, and our conversation with them is the content of this program.

Doing my best to help the Lord set the brushfires of freedom in the hearts of men and to restore America, God willing, to the beacon of freedom she was meant to be.
Politics: TPP again. The obama administration may as well put up a sign saying "hey multinational corporations, need money? Sue America."
Religion: Why are millenials leaving the church? Study says it's because they are bored. Time to start giving them some real food for thought. But then deep thought over Christianity and it role in the maintenance of a stable and relatively safe society wouild require work on their part.
Doing What's Right: The pioneer spirit built this nation and is required to maintain it.

The Pew Research Center says: "By some key measures, Americans ages 18 to 29 are considerably less religious than older Americans. Fewer young adults belong to any particular faith community compared to older people today. Also they’re less likely to be religiously affiliated than their parents’ and grandparents’ were, when younger. Fully one fourth of the Millennial generation are unaffiliated with any particular faith group. And more young people say that religion 'isn’t very important in their lives' compared to the elder generation."
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. These young adults have some “significant” questions for us around the issues of inclusion regarding faith communities and religious authority.
